Weight Stigma Awareness Week, Sept. 22-26

Weight stigma and discrimination include judgment, stereotyping and treatment based on one's weight, shape and/or size. Weight stigma impacts the student who fits uncomfortably in chairs and desks made for smaller bodies, the staff member paid less or bypassed for promotions because she's larger, and anyone who avoids preventative health care knowing they'll be shamed for their weight.


Don't be a part of the problem. Stop the diet and body bashing talk. Learn about the Health At Every Size (HAES) approach to wellness. Become involved in the student organization, Embodied: Living the HAES Way, on facebook at: and OrgSync: 


For more information please contact Michelle Morris at 530-898-4757 or 


* The HAES® paradigm is based on the premise that the best way to improve health is to honor your body. HAES encourages: 

-Accepting & respecting the natural diversity of body sizes & shapes ;

-Eating in a flexible manner that values pleasure & honors internal cues of hunger, satiety & appetite;  and

-Finding the joy in moving one’s body & becoming more physically vital.
